Bizarre Taxidermy

Beady glass eyes stare forlornly, dismembered limbs are strewn around and a faint smell of formalin hangs in the air. This is how many would picture the studio of a taxidermist, and they might not be so far off. However, the objective of taxidermy has changed. Whereas it was once purely about the preservation of dead animals in order to make them appear to be as lifelike as possible, the new goal of artistic taxidermy is to create something unique. The results of this new art form are fantasy animals and hybrid creatures — some cute, some gory.
